All the media is carrying Roland Burris' prepared remarks, denying any "pay to play" allegations. But what this story shows is a frustrated and angry Burris yelling at WLS-TV reporter Jason Knowles when ambushed early in the day outside his home. That segment begins about 1 minute into the video.

Burris uses an old trial lawyer trick to shift attention away from the real issue, i.e. the fact that he initially denied any contact with the Blagos, until he later filed the affidavit that he's yammering about here.
Dirty or clean? We report, you decide.

he is denying everything that hasn't come out publicly yet; when it does, it admits to what has leaked out, and continues to deny everything else.

You can't blame Burris, look how William Jefferson refused to leave, even with tapes and 100K stuffed in his freezer!
The RATS didn't boot him out until the voters did.

(Just another backstabbing conservative)
What would you give to see Burris and Pelosi in the same room, same presser, taking questions from a hostile press.
Yeah I know, hostile press will not be found.

Which Republican should run, in Illinois U.S. Senate race? I hope that my congressman, Mark Kirk, will run and lose the primary. No well-known conservative has announced, for this race.
